That moment your life changes. That moment that changes your life. That moment you love someone more than you love yourself. That was the moment we gave our son up for adoption and the moment I was left bare. A wide-open space that would forever be empty. There are moments that define you as a person, moments that prove just how strong you are, moments you push yourself to keep going forward when all you really want to do is give up. It was in one of those moments when I reached out and found him waiting for me.

This book was not for me. I could get over the fact that the hero and heroine put their baby up for adoption and then the hero does something stupid a year later and has more children then marries that baby's mama, but didn't step up and marry the love of his life. This was sort of explained, but it was never actually explained why he didn't marry or at least stay with the heroine.
But, all that aside I really couldn't "feel" anything when I read the book. I felt like everything went by so quickly it was hard to grasp what the characters were actually feeling, and that made things not so good for me reading it.
I thought I would like this one because it was a different type of story, but really the whole "adoption" thing was only an issue a few times, and then poof it was magically okay.
So, this one was not for me, and I do not like it.
